So we had our endo visit today, our 3 month visit, even though I realized it's actually been more than 3 months, lol. She was dx in Dec. The endo is much like me... although the numbers are good (and K's a1c was 7.2, which made the endo happy from her 8.3 last time), she was as unhappy with the lows as I am. I was relieved by that, odd as it might sound. She also was 100% on board with us getting a pump as soon as possible. It looks like it'll be a one-touch Ping, which I like my research on. I do not want pods. Although it does sound freer, the "remote required" is just not realistic for our family. The endo stated that she thinks we'll be happier just getting Kira's numbers more under control, rather than using the cgms. She thinks it will make us crazy by going off every 5 minutes, lol. I will see how the pump does. If we get the control we need from that, then I will dismiss the idea of the cgms. I was a little surprised she wasn't bigger on it, since she seemed very concerned about the lows and a seizure. Anyway, she said that she's very, very positive on kids on their honeymoons using pumps (oh dear, it sounds so wrong on so many levels! especially since this would be the WORST honeymoon EVER, if it were a marriage, lol). Kira is 6, but she's on literally toddler doses, and the doses are going down, down, and down. She's currently on a 1:60 ratio, no correction until 300, and a correction factor of 200 (1/2 unit brings her glucose down 100). These doses are so very sensitive that it's sometimes impossible to predict the outcome. If I'm off in my factoring by just a few carbs either way, she can plummet or zoom. With a pump, the ability to deliver more accurate doses would be available. I will wait and see if the pump provides the improvement in numbers that my endo thinks it will. If the lows continue, I'm going to push for the cgms next time (probably sooner than her 3 month visit). I believe I could have pushed harder for the cgms and gotten it, but she sort of convinced me that the cgms might have the end result of me just trying to control it MORE, not less... and that the alarms might be more annoying than useful. My personal jury is out, but I can still push for it next time if I don't feel the pump is the "fix" that will help with these lows that upset me so much. Anyway, now she's sick, so we're spending the next couple of days on sick care. Ain't d-life grand?
